Develop your market and revenue expansion opportunities through ongoing remote access to industry and business experts for up to 10 months

Each business in the Maximizer program will receive a value of up to $30,000 in pro bono consulting. We will connect you with specific volunteer Skillanthropists who match up with your business and have extensive experience across such companies as PwC, IBM, Amazon, ZS Associates and Starbucks. They will generously share their skills and knowledge with you through a combination of group and one-on-one sessions.

See a defined path to profitable growth that will preserve and create more jobs

Bpeace’s hallmark is the care and knowledge our Skillanthropist experts provide to entrepreneurs and small-business owners, inspiring them to imagine what is possible and then identify the practical details needed to achieve their vision. Skillanthropists are business pros with practical methodologies and proven experience.

You qualify for the Bpeace Maximizer program if you meet the following criteria:

At the end of 2019, you generated annual sales between $200,000 and $2 million.

You have more than two years of formal operations in the U.S.

At the end of 2019, you have provided full-time employment to at least 5 people working in the U.S.

You have the potential for significant growth to increase income and profits, and generate more and better job opportunities in the U.S.

How the Bpeace Maximizer program works

Our judges will select up to 15 high-potential Black, minority or women-owned businesses for the Bpeace Maximizer program. You will participate in highly personalized group workshops for you and up to three members of your leadership team. We will also identify a Growth Project to help you strengthen your operations and maximize your opportunities. Your private team of Skillanthropist business experts will advise you remotely through a series of video calls involving you and key members of your team.

Acceptance into the Bpeace Maximizer program requires a nominal one-time fee

While Bpeace’s experts offer their time at no cost, we require Bpeace Maximizer participants to pay a nominal fee. We have adjusted the participation fees due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fee covers the full participation of your CEO/owner and up to three other members of your leadership team. We base this one-time fee on your business’s annual sales:

Annual Sales One-time Fee
$200,000-$750,000 $250
$750,001-$1,500,000 $500
More than $1,500,000 $750
